Pasta Alfredo & Garlic Bread

Friday Night's Dinner & A Blip

Today we were short on time since we went to a birthday party until 6:30. So I was looking in my pantry for some quick bites for dinner. Not to mention I was running low on supplies, but luckily I found a packet of Alfredo sauce thanks to the Knorr Sauce Mixes I stashed a few months ago. We also had Linguine, which with the Alfredo sauce turned out to be a great meal. I served it with garlic bread and it came out awesome! The best part is I was done in 15 minutes. Talk about a quick Tasty Byte!

Tonight's Music Blip
The song I was listening to while cooking up this pasta symphony was a tribute to the much awaited 1st day of Spring!

This is the most beautiful time of year in Georgia! The flowers are blooming and everything is waking up... as my 5 year old told me today.

Tonight's Quick, Cheap & Tasty, Tasty Bytes Recipe

Alfredo & Linguine Ingredients
1 Packet of Knorr's Alfredo Sauce Mix
1 3/4 cup of milk or non-fat milk
1 tsp. of butter or margarine
16 oz. of linguine
Pepper, Oregano & Garlic Powder

If you crave protein you can also add chicken cutletts.

Garlic Bread
1 Pillsbury Frozen Garlic Bread.
-You will find this in freezer section and it is YUMMY!

Boil the linguine and in a separate sauce pan follow the directions on the back of the Knorr Alfredo Sauce packet. While it is cooking add garlic powder and black pepper. After the sauce has thickened add it to the linguine. Sprinkle with some oregano and serve.

I added a nice glass of white wine and I felt like we had visited Macaroni Grill with out the big bill. I would say it all cost me about $5.00.

The best part is that my picky eaters (the daddy too) loved it!
